WHAT IS PROBUS?
The term PROBUS is derived from two words, PROfessional and BUSiness. It is an association of retired people who join together in a non-political, non-sectarian International Club which provides a regular opportunity for them to meet like minded folk, make new friends and expand their interests.
Members join together in clubs, the basic purpose of which is to provide regular opportunities to keep their minds active, expand their interests and enjoy the fellowship of new friends. The basic purpose of a Probus club is to provide regular gatherings of persons, who, in their retirement appreciate and value opportunities to meet others in similar circumstances and similar levels of interest.
All clubs are sponsored by Rotary Clubs, but potential Probus members are not required to be past members of Rotary. Fewer than 10% of Probus members are former Rotarians.
